  • "compare in new view" missing in build 10168

    It is one of my most used functions. A new view without losing my place.

    - Select a directory (pair), R-Click "Compare in New View"
    Creates a subset of the directories, perfect for "Expand All" and such

    - In the same pane, Ctrl-Click two files, and "Compare in New View"
    Can't find any alternatives to this now.

    - In the same pane, Ctrl-Click two directories,
    R-Click / Open With / Folder Compare
    ( Just in a different place ).

    I really miss this feature.

    * Found some replacements using "Open With" ... but "Compare in New View" was fewer clicks.
    * And "Open" using two selected files behaves like the older "Compare in New View".

    Hi Dick,

    It's actually still there, it's just labeled "Open" now. That was an unintended side effect of the other changes we made, and I don't think just "Open" is a good name for that command when folders are selected, so that will probably change. We aren't planning on removing the command, whatever it's called.

      Please do not remove the command.
      It is the quickest way to view a compare result of 2 files.

        We haven't removed it and have no plans to do so. It's in the current release as "Open in New View" and will more than likely stay that way.
